I've been doing it since Halo:CE and currently do it with minecraft.
There's your 5th use case.

Linus: Our sponsor CyberGhost provide the best Virtual Private Network of the Market buy it and use code Linus for a discount.
Also Linus months later: Don’t trust VPN providers , even your own VPN is not enough trustful.
Linus(again) but in this video: treat your eyes using this new 2020 method thanks to Biofinity Energys.
Also linus(again) probably in 2022:ughhh we cannot continue trust Biofinity Energys anymore but let me present you today’s sponsor.



Edit:Thanks guys for likes

As someone whose last use of torrents was legitimately just getting a Linux iso, I feel simultaneously attacked and vindicated.

Often feel like I’m the only person who legitimately only torrents Linux ISO’s.

Why not a LTT VPN. Seems like he cares and is more than able to set it up

Always wondered what was more “secure” about sending your traffic to some random company.
